[Hör]1 es klagt die Flöte wieder
Und die kühlen [Brunnen]2 rauschen,
Golden wehn die Töne nieder,
Stille, [stille]3, laß uns lauschen!

Holdes Bitten, mild Verlangen,
[Wie es süß zum Herzen spricht]4!
Durch die Nacht die mich umfangen,
Blickt zu mir der Töne Licht.

Dein Lied erklang, es war kein Ton vergebens, Der ganze Frühling, der von Liebe haucht, Hat, als du sangest, nieder sich getaucht, Im sehnsuchtsvollen Strome meines Lebens, Im Sonnenuntergang, Als mir dein Lied erklang!

Note: in editions of Brentano's poetry published after about 1900, the first line has "gehöret" and the fourth line has "bekehret".

Mit gelben Birnen hänget
Und voll mit wilden Rosen
Das Land in den See,
Ihr holden Schwäne,
Und trunken von Küssen
[[Tunkt]1 ihr das Haupt
Ins heilignüchterne Wasser.]2

Weh mir, wo nehm' ich, wenn
Es Winter ist, die Blumen, und wo
Den Sonnenschein,
Und Schatten der Erde?
Die Mauern [stehn]3
Sprachlos und kalt, im Winde
Klirren die Fahnen.
